I need to execute a shell script from java code by passing the parameters. In short, the following command works perfect from a terminal and I need to get this executed from java code:

tom@tom-Inspiron-N4050:~/Downloads/myscripts$ ./test_final_6jun.sh test com/abc


In the above code "./test_final_6jun.sh" is the script and "test com/abc" is the parameter to be passed. How can I accomplish this using java code? Any help is much appreciated.

Note particularly the issues around ensuring that stderr is read too and that streams are read in their own separate threads
